The technology used by AttriX, designed by the world’s leading connected transportation operator, becomes the first device to achieve this certification.


Geotab, a world leader in the Internet of Things and connected transportation, is proud to announce that the cryptographic module inside its GO vehicle tracking device has received FIPS 140-2 certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), with the certificate #3371. As the first telematics company to achieve this standard, Geotab joins the ranks of the world’s leading trusted brands, and demonstrates its commitment to ensuring the safety, confidentiality and integrity of its customers over the long term.

Administered by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), jointly managed by NIST and the Canadian Telecommunications Security Establishment (CST), FIPS 140-2 is the standard of reference for cryptographic modules protecting sensitive information in computers and telecommunications systems for the U.S. government, the Canadian government and military uses.

“We are extremely pleased to have reached the highest standard set by the Canadian and U.S. governments,” said Neil Cawse, Founder and CEO of Geotab. “As a catalyst for public and private sector fleets with world-leading telematics technologies, we are committed to providing maximum safety and quality. Now, every Geotab client — whether it’s highly regulated industries or federal agencies and their contractors — can be assured that their data is protected with government-validated military-level encryption U.S. and Canada. ”

Geotab manages the entire technology infrastructure, from computer hardware, integrated firmware used to encrypt and transmit data, to secure hosting servers and application software. With Geotab’s innovations at the forefront of security, rigorous organizational data security measures are integrated into all solutions, through meticulous collection, transmission and encrypted storage of data, which respond to the industry’s best cyber security practices.

“We know that our customers’ data is confidential and sensitive, and must be secure at all costs,” said Anthony Mainville, President of AttriX. “FIPS 140-2 meets the requirements of the most important government services that require the best data protection possible. We are proud to be among the first in North America to be able to offer our customers the best in terms of encryption and information protection. ”

With the more widespread use of telematics and recent developments in the world of autonomous vehicles, including the arrival of Level 2 autonomy on Freightliner’s new Cascadia, cybersecurity is increasingly a important consideration in the trucking industry. Transportation companies need key information, much like the black box of an airplane, to determine the circumstances of an accident. But this information must also be protected from intrusion. Anthony Mainville of AttriX is pleased to see that Geotab, the company’s chosen solution, has taken the lead in not only ensuring the highest level of security, but above all, getting it certified by the most rigorous authorities.

“We have been talking about the importance of cybersecurity in the industry for a long time. I am pleased to see that several suppliers are finally starting to mention it. Cybersecurity is often a part of my customer base, and it is the responsibility of suppliers not only to raise awareness and raise awareness of the risks associated with them, but also to take steps to ensure that ensure their certification and guarantee the highest level of security.”
